Continuity mistake: As G√ľnther leaves the room, Klink touches his forehead and begins to sit down (or his knees are buckling, not relevant). After the next cut, he sinks down into a chair in a closeup. That same chair was behind Hogan before the cut.

Reservations Are Required - S1-E15

Continuity mistake: Hogan dumps a bucket of water on Barnes and Davis each, to make it look like they were the ones who hid in the tanker. They get big wet patches on their uniforms from it, but aren't completely wet through and through - which is to be expected, after all it's just a small bucket of water each. After the next cut however, they are completely soaked like they went swimming.

The Merry Widow - S5-E24

Continuity mistake: As Schultz marches in with the Kraut platoon, he reports to Klink. As he goes to stand at attention and report, the new tunnel section he's over collapses, and he completely disappears into the hole.

Continuity mistake: When the man and woman from the underground meet Hogan at the Hoffbrau, they're taking off their outer coats. The man takes off a dark brown coat and drops it.

The next shot, he"s taking off the dark brown coat again, hangs it up and goes for beer.

Kommandant Schultz - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: After Shultz has been discredited, Klink is taking away the "badges of rank". When Klink goes to crush the monocle Shultz was wearing, he has his monocle on. After the shot cuts to a closeup of Shultz's monocle being crushed, and widens out, you see Klink's monocle is suddenly gone. It remains missing until Klink goes to the hat rack. The shot cuts from Klink, to Hogan and Shultz, then back, and the famous monocle is suddenly back, both without Klink stopping to take it off, or put it back on.

The Purchasing Plan - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: After the prisoners have loaded the truck, they stand around and the tailgate of the truck is down. Major Hochstetter arrives and we see the tailgate is raised. Next scene it is again in the lowered position. (00:17:40)

Continuity mistake: Carter and Newkirk have just taken the escapees down the tree trunk to the tunnels. When they go to open it, they clear off the snow to open it. When the shot goes to a German soldier that was chasing them, the phony stump is suddenly covered over again. It would still have been visible, having just been exposed.

Movie Nut

Kommandant Schultz - S6-E7

Continuity mistake: Notice the jacket that Carter always wears. It always appears worn with age and use. This episode, it appears almost new.

Movie Nut

The Informer - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: Hogan gives a birthday party when the prisoners capture a German plane. When it is taking off, it is an English Lancaster bomber with a twin tail. As it is flying overhead, it is an American B-17 with a single tail. Finally as it is shown flying, it is a German FW-200 maritime bomber.

The Gasoline War - S5-E4

Revealing mistake: During the main part of the plot, the guys are putting dynamite on each truck in the convoy as they fuel up at Stalag 13. It is supposed to be dark, (hence the reason the boys wear black) but there are shadows as if it were day. It's impossible for the driver in the following truck and the guard in the tower to miss seeing the boys as they go back and forth to plant charges.
